An Introduction to Vaccine Exemptions #Vaccines #Vaccine Exemptions #Mandated Vaccines

You may read Alan’s Q & A responses from posts earlier this week. Great answers from a wide variety of questions. Please feel free to send in any legal questions you may have for him in relation to vaccines. He is the foremost, national legal expert in this area.

It is always better to be prepared with anything tied to legal matters than to be surprised with legal challenges. Know your stuff. What would make sense to be our common right at times has been twisted to benefit another entity. A quick check ahead of time can save a lot of headaches and money.

When commenting, I would love to know your names and/or the state or country where you reside.

Thanks, Jen  🙂

An Introduction to Vaccine Exemptions  

Everywhere routine vaccines are mandated in the United States, one or more exemptions are allowed.

     Everywhere vaccines are mandated, at least some people may be eligible to refuse them legally without penalty. Exceptions to vaccine mandates fall into three basic categories:

1. Medical: Generally available whenever vaccines pose a serious risk of harm to the intended recipient. Usually, they require a recommendation from a licensed medical doctor. Some authorities can deny medical exemptions even when recommended by a licensed medical doctor.

2. Religious: Available to most people who have sincerely held religious objections. Specific qualifying criteria may vary with different state or federal laws. These are offered in 48 states and in all federal jurisdictions.

3. Personal or Philosophical: Available to some people with personal or philosophical objections. Offered in about U.S. 20 states for students and in Maine for healthcare workers, but not in any federal jurisdictions or contexts.

Exemptions may not apply in emergency situations. See the Pandemic Response Project for more information on this.

DO YOU NEED AN ATTORNEY?

     No one is required to hire an attorney to exercise a legal right. However, making informed decisions requires having a sufficient understanding of your rights, and there are few short-answer vaccine exemption questions. Vaccine exemption and waiver law is more complicated than most people realize. Many people end up spending a lot of money paying an attorney to try to get them out of a problem they could have avoided altogether if they had only consulted an attorney ahead of time.

     The two best ways to make informed decisions on vaccine exemptions and waivers are to consult an experienced attorney, and/or purchase The Authoritative Guide to Vaccine Legal Exemptions e-book. Beware of Internet advice. Even highly reputable sites, including those of alternative medical doctors and vaccine book authors, provide information about vaccine rights that is usually a mixture of accurate and inaccurate information. Some who have relied on anti-vaccine websites have lost exemption rights unnecessarily. If it doesn’t come from an attorney experienced in this area of the law, beware!

Q & A Cont. With Alan Philips Esq. #Vaccines #Mandated Vaccines #Vaccine Exemptions

Very fascinating material today and all week.  Thank you Mr. Phillips for your time in this area.  What a great value this has been to all of us.  We look forward to your future Q & A participation.

Q:   Can you complete waivers if you want to pick and choose which vaccinations your pet undergoes?

Illinois

A:  About a dozen states have medical exemptions for dogs, but that’s it. Pets don’t have religious beliefs, and they are considered “chattel”—property—under the law, for the most part. But first, determine what vaccines are required by law and which ones are merely recommended (for your veterinarian’s and big pharma’s financial gain). Beyond that, it’s probably up to a vet to decide, though the option to pick and choose could vary from state to state depending on the specific wording of each state’s laws.

   Very few states allow “pick and choose” for school exemptions. While such an option might be inferred in any state with a philosophical exemption, if it’s not clearly spelled out, you can’t necessarily make the assumption that it’s a legal option. Similarly, delayed vaccines, even where supported by a doctor, may not be a legal option. Remember—we don’t get to decide how to interpret the law—that’s the job of the courts. So, if you’re not sure about the interpretation of your state’s law, consider consulting an attorney about the matter. Every state has “statutory construction” rules or laws that explain how to interpret each state’s statutes. Legally, either those rules and/or legal precedent will answer the question; and if there is a formal dispute, then a judge may ultimately have to decide.

   I really like what Colorado has, a form that allows you to check exactly which vaccines you are refusing, and to indicate whether or not the refusal is for religious or philosophical reasons. You can’t get much more flexible than that! Odd, though, that Colorado state law also requires healthcare workers to get flu vaccines and offers *no* exemption option for that. There is a right to refuse for religious reasons, however, under federal civil rights law.

Q:   How is the vaccine court different from other U.S. courts?

A:   The “vaccine courts” are a division of the Court of Federal Claims that address only vaccine injury compensation claims, and nothing else. They have “special masters” instead of judges, and have their own unique procedural rules. They are the only option vaccine victims have for any kind of compensation for their injury, or their families for their death when a vaccines kills someone. At last check, only about 26% of applicants get compensated. The system was created by the National Childhood Injury Compensation Act of 1986, and supposedly to make it easier for vaccine victims to get compensation, but in practice it has become harder and harder to get compensation, and instead of being much quicker than state courts, it can take much longer, from what I’ve heard. Still, the system pays out $100 million annually, and this is despite the fact that the FDA and CDC say that only 1 – 10% of serious adverse events ever get reported in the first place. So, the system is, at least in the minds of vaccine injury advocates, in dire need of revision. A recent hearing to review the problems was postponed…

TRUTH IN SCIENCE, TRUE SCIENCE IN LAW

Q & A Cont. With Alan Phillips Esq. #Vaccines #Mandated Vaccines #Vaccine Exemptions

Q:    What errors in regards to vaccinations are most common in triggering legal issues?

Texas

A:    By far, proceeding on your own without first learning about your rights! Vaccine are required for school (public, private, home, military), in the military (members, families, civilian contractors), with immigration—at least the legal immigrants (also includes foreign adoption), at work (primarily healthcare workers at this time, but DHHS plans to vaccinate *all* US employees with the flu vaccines, and there are over *270 new vaccines* already seeking FDA approval or in clinical trials to follow that one!)—sometimes required by employers, and sometime by state law…

   The biggest problems usually concern religious exemptions, in situations where you have to state your beliefs (sometimes you do, sometimes you don’t). If you do, consult with a knowledgeable attorney *before* you submit your statement of beliefs. In my experience, most people who do this on their own fall into one or more legal pitfalls, because the law in this area isn’t consistent with most people’s common sense approach. Where I see the greatest need for legal assistance is with employees, immigrants, in the military, with college students doing healthcare curriculums that require doing clinical work in local facilities (state laws don’t apply in this situation), and with parents in custody disputes (in my experience with family law attorneys around the U.S., family law attorneys don’t know how to approach parent/child-custody vaccine disputes; there are legal arguments unique to this situation).

   Unfortunately, people often mistake what they think their rights *should* be with what they actually are. For example, with vaccines, we don’t have a legal right to decide what goes into our body, despite how strongly you or I feel that we should. So, as with any important legal issue, find out as much about your rights as you can BEFORE you act.

   My e-book provides information to enable you to learn about vaccine exemption and waiver law, so you can make informed exemption decisions: http://vaccinerights.com/e-book.html

Q:   If you have been fully inoculated and the military loses your vaccination record is there anything you can do in order to avoid being inoculated again?

Hawaii

A:   Exercise an available exemption if you can. I expect that the military would see nothing wrong with vaccinating you again “just to be sure…” The military offers medical and administrative exemptions, and the latter includes religious exemptions. There are multi-branch regulations, and some branch-specific regulations.

   This can be tricky; most people in the military think there aren’t any exemptions, and they will not always cooperate with you. I got the Navy to agree to change their unlawful policy and banch-specific regulations, but they never followed through with that. So, it’s really hard to get an exemption there without my help, as you have to not only have a legally sound statement of beliefs, you have to go to the right person who has authority to tell your superior to allow you to have the exemption despite the (unlawful) regulations whose requirements are very hard to meet. Here’s an article about my experience with the Navy: http://www.naturalnews.com/032184_vaccine_exemptions_Navy.html

Top psychiatrist: ‘We are turning childhood into a disease’ Read more: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health-fitness/top-psychiatrist-8216we-are-turning-childhood-into-a-disease8217/story-fneuzlbd-1226680254702#ixzz2ZT7XwUMg

ABSTRACT

FOR any parent, having to accept your child needs psychiatric drugs must be agonising. But when Susan Bevis’s 13-year-old daughter Amy suffered a breakdown after a vicious campaign of school bullying, drugs seemed the only option – as instructed by psychiatrists.

Schizophrenia, ADHD and Autism, to name a few are believed to be over diagnosed with  untested medications on children.  Much more covered in the article in relation to mental illness diagnosis. Would love a day when doctors and researchers have more authority and research clout than the pharmaceutical companies.
